I'm baking my first 12 inch cake. Do I need to use a heating core or bake even strips. I don't really have problems with my cakes having domes.

I bake my 6 inch cakes at 340 and my 8 or 9 inch cakes at 335.
What temp should I bake the 12 inch.

I always use a couple of flower nails to help with even baking for any pan over 10 inches. I also bake at about 300.

I bake mine at 325 degrees with no heating core or strips. It takes a long time - but is very moist. HTH!

No flower nails in 50 years of baking. (OK I tried it once just because of all you guys, but it didn't seem to do anything and was just silly.) I bake at convection 300.

Thanks for quick replies. I didn't want to spend money on something I don't really need.
